City of South Gate Veterans Committee
The City of South Gate Veterans Committee comprises volunteers from many civic organizations such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, Native American Veterans Association, South Gate Army JROTC, and the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
The mission of the Veterans Committee is to serve our veterans, the military, our communities, and to advocate on behalf of all veterans and their families.
The Veterans Committee aspires to ensure that veterans are respected for their service, receive their earned entitlements, and are recognized for the sacrifices they and their loved ones have made.
Some of the activities and values include the following:
· Central repository for information and documents concerning veterans' benefits (medical, educational, vocational, and housing.)
· Communicate and publicize information through the City of South Gate website (www.cityofsouthgate.org) and other electronic media.
· Provide a venue that would facilitate veterans to network and seek medical or financial help.
· Promote volunteerism and foster true patriotism to maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom.
· Honor our veterans for their courage, sacrifice, and perseverance through our own community service.
If you would like any information about the resources described above, or would like to help our veteran community by volunteering, please call or email Debra Valdez at (323) 563-9501 / email@example.com stop by South Gate City Hall and visit the Resource Center on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
